    When trying for really high overclocks and benchmarking, you need to turn it off, as it uses way too much CPU resources.
    Yep, though static and rotating color are done by the aura chip on the motherboard and don't use any CPU. Everything else is a CPU hog.

    I just created a simple Benchmark and CPU & GPU settings Excel list(actually just made changes to another one meant for games) and thought I would upload it, in case, someone wants to use it themselves.

    It is designed to just show your last high score(to know if the run is worth posting) and settings to CPU speed, and GPU core and mem clocks/ + or - on the slider.

    It also includes links to the respective benchmark threads first page.

    I used larger, gold fonts on dark gray background tho make it easy on the eyes.
    Just write over the fields I have filled in for myself. and if you run any other benchmarks, it will be formatted with the rest, so no problem there either.

    Interesting Cliff, even thou your OC is a lot higher then mine, my scores are still much better than yours....

    Oh stop bragging
    I didn't post the screenshot and Excel sheet to show off my scores, but to share the sheet format and show how to fill it out
    Plus I don't have as much time to bench over & over , and I am more interest in pushing my hardware to the edge of stability, then try to jump beyond.

    For me, it's all about GHz/MHz not pts.

    Yep, it's all about power-, thermaltargets, RAM timings and frequencies, VRMs and actual cooling capabilities. Max CPU frequency means squat, if it isn't sustainable.

    I have perfect stability at 5.347GHz

    Yes I agree on that part....LoL Mine are pretty good.

    I don't use Excel ....so that Excel sheet would not do me much good....

    Is it sustainable, or does it throttle below? What about RAM? Anything still tweakable there? What about the MB? Some MBs are a bit slower(has more latency) than others, it's not much, but at those speeds it makes a HUGE difference.

    Which still amazes me Cliff, not many 9900K chips can go over 5.2GHz You got a really great chip.

    I'm not claiming I'm a pro in OC:ing or similar, far from it. But getting the RAM timings and speeds right can have a HUGE impact on performance, even at much lower CPU frequencies.
